2018 #AATGAprilscherz Contest

Sharpen your wit for the fourth-annual #AATGAprilscherz Contest! Get creative with your knowledge of German and English to devise wacky, fun Komposita in German: Each Kompositum should start with an existing German word, which is then translated to English, then back to German—and the results should be entertaining! For example, check out the Eipflanze to the left. Can you guess the original German word? Hover to see answer: Aubergine

It’s easy to enter. Just create your German word and an image that illustrates it. Your image can be a photo, drawing, painting, collage, sculpture, or any other medium, but it should be original work and the file uploaded should be a .jpg or .png. You can enter as many times as you wish — and your students can, too! — by March 23.

On April 1 we'll announce the top entries on Twitter and Instagram. Follow the announcements and join the fun #AATGAprilscherz.
